The Most Common Sports Injuries Are Strains And Sprains

Submitted by • January 4, 2019 www.jointclinic.in

Sprains are injuries to ligaments, the tough bands connecting bones in a joint. Suddenly stretching ligaments past their limits deforms or tears them. Strains are injuries to muscle fibers or tendons, which anchor muscles to bones. Strains are called “pulled muscles” for a reason: Over-stretching or overusing a muscle causes tears in the muscle fibers or tendons.

Think of ligaments and muscle-tendon units like springs. The tissue lengthens with stress and returns to its normal length unless it is pulled too far out of its normal range.
